Changing LAN IP via SDM in a 800 series

Hi all,

my 857W doesn't like me. I can do whatever I want it will not accept the LAN IP I have entered in the SDM setup. It says its preparing coammnds for delivery and after ~2 minutes it loses connection to the router. But when I restart the SDM and use the new LAN IP the router does not answer. It either answers with the old one. What kind of feature is this ? My other less "advanced" routers where defenitely more intuitive than this one.

The requested username&password change for the first setup lets also "hang" the the SDM, but after a SDM restart it works again and it even changed username& pw. But the LAN IP . . . :-( Guess this SMD interface is still a bit beta !? Or is my router defective ?
